A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THESAURI TOOLS - A Perspective from Integrability in Information Systems

Beatriz Perez-León, M. Mercedes Martínez-González

Abstract

The Semantic Web has brought a renewed interest in thesauri as support for semantic searches and other added-value services. Tools that manage thesauri permit to create, edit, and query thesauri. But there is also the possibility to import thesauri and to integrate thesauri. In fact, integrability at the information level has also received an important push with the stabilisation of the SKOS standard as a W3C Recommendation. In this paper several thesauri tools are evaluated and compared.
